I've been searching around the net to find a definition for input box (just like MessageBoxA is defined in WinUser32.mqh).  Does anyone know how input box can be called using DLL references or any other means? Thanks in advance!

Testing and Optimization of Expert Advisors

The article provides a detailed description of the process of testing and optimizing Expert Advisors in the MetaTrader 4 Strategy Tester. The importance of such information and the need for this publication cannot be underestimated. A lot of users who only get started with the MetaTrader 4 trading platform have a very vague idea of what and how needs to be done when working with Expert Advisors. The proposed article gives simple and clear answers to all of these questions and provides a slightly more professional approach to handling these issues using a specific example.

just include the WinUser32.mqh in you script like following, and call it as usual function.

#include <WinUser32.mqh>

WinUser32.mqh doesnt contain any input box function definition. I doubt that's going to work.

Dear andrew

If you don't mind, you can try this inputbox.dll. I just make one for you but its look is not very nice you can have a try. Please add following line in your script before use. Thanks.

#import "inputbox.dll"
   string InputBox(string prompt, string title, string default_value);
#import

Hi brother3th!! Sorry for delay. In any case your input box worked very nice :) Cheers for that. Can i have a VC++ source for this? Did you use VC6 to compile your DLL? I'd like to learn how to do this. Thanks in advance!
